    Google gesture

    Try an app called Google Gesture. You open the app, use your finger to draw a starting letter and all contacts (and applications) starting with that letter appear. Just select the one you want.:icon_ banana:

    It's still faster to you press the search button/microphone/give contact name and let it dial - or as someone else stated set up a shortcut .

    Google Gesture is cooler however. :)

    I'd say that in terms of speed:

    Direct dial contact

    Gesture search

    Voice search

    Personally I just hit the phone and then fav's, although I haven't set any, my most frequently called people are typically whom I'm calling anyway.

    if you know which number you want to call, for instance you're trying to call your Mom's mobile number.

    Instead of saying "call Mom" say, "call Mom mobile" it will go straight to that number instead of having to pick it out of the list, will save you an additional couple steps.

    Definitely, I use Voice Search constantly. I even have the button on my Main screen. It's actually much more accurate to use than Voice Dialer from my experience, which is odd.

    So it's just:
    Swipe to Unlock
    Press Voice Search
    Talk (i.e., "Call Kevin Mobile")

    aContacts let's you create shortcuts for search contacts by first letter, group, or organization. So if you set-up a number of groups (i.e. family), then you with two clicks you have your list down to 5-10 names fitting on one screen. 3-5 seconds to make a call.

    I don't much care for voice search. Brings up at least 10-12 similar sounding names and it's slow to launch and slow to process recognition.

    I just use the google search box/widget. Since it searches all contacts, ive found thats the quickest way to get to the person im looking for.
    Or like somebody else said, just put a shortcut/direct dial on your home screen for whomever you call the most. For me i have my wifey and my sister, and other peeps i call the most. I basically have one whole screen dedicated to direct dials

    its been mentioned already, but I just discovered this the other day
    if you LONG press the search button it will open the voice dial menu so it saves one step

    Download google gesture seach from the market (free). Add a shortcut to your homescreen and then when it opens, input letters and walllla......... It's also a way to quickly get to your apps if you at least know the first letter in the name.

    I second the motion as I just downloaded it and replaced my default dialer with it. It is very handy and free surprisingly. :motdroidhoriz:

    Does any one else have problems with the touch screen when making calls. When I make a call either the person can't hear me and I can hear them. And I end up pushing buttons with my cheek when I am talking. Does any one have any ideas?
